Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PlayStation Vita) review

 

Classic RPG gets modern makeover

Graphical overhaul that modernises the game ; Final Fantasy X in particular holds up well

Final Fantasy X-2 remains as odd as it was originally ; Only Final Fantasy X is available as a physical copy

Final Fantasy X was revolutionary when it originally came out and the remastered version proves why. Time has not improved Final Fantasy X-2’s standing, though fans will appreciate the supplementary game time.

Too costly

 

IT is too costly.The product is good enough,but the price is too high. For the same price, you can get an Xbox 360 and Fifa 13. Or, if you are a Sony fan, then you could also get a PS3 at nearly the same price, with PSMove.

Does not make Sense!!!!

 

No matter how technically advanced a product is, it price can ultimately cause its demise. I am afraid that PS Vita will fall prey to its Price. A 160GB PS3 is available at Rs.16990 but the Cheapest VITA cost Rs. 19990. Thats Insane, i actually Dont...

Rich Takeover

 

BAD camera, WiFi slow and price too high. I bet they'll be releasing the budget version pretty soon and game and Memory cards would go down to Rs. 800- 1500 and Rs. 800- 1200 respectively. That too, very soon. I've seen the No. of units sold in...

Best hanheld yet.(by far)Maybe even better than PS3.

 

The best thing about the vita is it's 5' OLED multi touch display. It looked fantastic while I was playing Uncharted Golden Abyss (Almost the same as PS3).The rear touch pad is also an awesome new innovation which makes the vita stand apart from other...

Omission in specs

 

5 inch (16:9) Capacitive Type, : Should be 5 inch (16:9) Capacitive Touch type. This model has a touch screen. This product is a great one if you are a casual gamer who is inclined to play, more due to boredom than a serious interest in gaming.
